Taylor Stadium-Rollie Greeno Field Renovation

Computer rendering of the proposed renovations to Taylor Stadium-Rollie Greeno Field.

University of Jamestown and Jamestown Public Schools plan for an $11 million renovation to Taylor Stadium-Rollie Greeno Field that will impact football and track and field.

Starting this fall, the project will renovate the Jimmies’ current football stadium and track, replacing the current grass with turf, new stadium lights, new press boxes, a concourse, updated restrooms and concessions, and a paved parking lot. The west end of the stadium will once again serve as the home side for Jamestown fans.

A new 400m track and throwing area is also slated to be part of the renovation. Jamestown has not hosted a home track meet in the last two years due to deteriorating track surface conditions.

University of Jamestown trustee Dr. Jo-Ida Hansen contributed a lead donation of $3 million. Currently $6.6 millon of the $11 million has been funded. The Jamestown Public School Board approved $2 million in funding at Monday night’s meeting.

The Jimmies are the only team in the Great Plains Athletic Conference that plays on grass, as well as the only North Dakota college team without turf. That will change this fall, as plans for the renovation are set to begin October 18th or 19th in time for the 2021 season.
